Welcome Back!

Image
Welcome back for the Spring 2018 semester.  Because of the way the school calendar is laid out at the beginning we wanted to clarify our hours through the first week of classes.  As most of you know classes will not actually begin until January 16th which is a Tuesday.  This is due to the Martin Luther King Holiday on the 15th.  Because of it falling outside of the regular semester we will not be open later on that day.  The first day of library hours will be the 16th.

As usual, the Library will only be open until 9 PM that first week of classes.  So the hours for the 16th-18th will be 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.  As per our policy the doors will be locked 10 minutes before closing time, so if you need to come by make sure you are in the library by 8:50 p.m.  The hours on the 19th will be 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  Regular hours will resume on Saturday, January 20th.

As a reminder, our regular hours are:
Sunday:  4:00 PM - Midnight Monday-Thursday:  7:30 AM - Midnight Friday:  7:30 AM - 5:00 P…

Comments & Suggestions

You may or may not have noticed, but we have a new area on the Library home page labeled "Comments" - and if you haven't noticed it take a look at the upper left hand corner under the library banner and you'll see the graphic shown to the left.
We have put this here to enable you to send us feedback - whether you have a complaint or a congratulations on a job well done - this is the place to do that.  While we would rather have a kudos than a complaint we realize that they are extremely valuable to us in finding out what is working and not working for you the user.  So if you have a complaint or a concern or simply a suggestion on improving the library we want your feedback.
These are completely anonymous - we don't ask for your email or your name - we just ask for your input at any time, now or in the future. Rest assured these comments will be going directly to Cynthia Peterson, the Director of Library Services and will be taken with the utmost seriousness.  T…
